I’m linking up with my friend Jaime again this week.
The Hiccupotamus and The Chuckling Duckling are beautifully written and illustrated children’s books by Aaron Zenz. I would say that even if I didn’t know the author/illustrator…but I do, which makes them even cooler.
I have known Amity, Aaron’s wife, since before they were dating. We went to college together. I remember when they started dating. Then I lived around the corner from their first apartment after they got married. They are an amazing couple! But enough about them, truly the books themselves stand on their own merits.
The Chuckling Duckling is a great book that teaches kids animal names. Names I had never heard, like Cria, which is a baby Llama, and the familiar, puppy, which is a baby dog. The illustrations are spectacular. This book is not only educational, it is cute!
And we can’t forget the Hiccupotamus about a hippo who gets, you guessed it, the hiccups. His hiccups make a mess for a lot of his friends, so they set out to get rid of them…
The art and color in this one is breathtaking. Some of the words are tongue twisters. Trust me, you will love it!
